Elahn Keshava is a teacher, writer and musician and the founder of Shekinashram, the world-renowned Bhakti Yoga ashram in Glastonbury UK. Having intensely practised yogic disciplines for 30 years, Elahn has deeply explored the different approaches to spiritual life, and has a wealth of experience both in spiritual practise, and within the different yoga modalities and the diverse spiritual traditions practiced throughout the world. In respect of Raja Yoga, Elahn has principally studied and practised the Iyengar, Ashtanga and Sivananda yoga systems, and has extensive experience as a teacher within the Jnana yoga system of self inquiry.  In the last 13 years or so having been initiated by the late venerable Bhakti Yoga acharya Srila Narayana Maharaj, Elahn’s focus evolved to become principally devoted to the path of Bhakti Yoga.

Elahn draws from a broad spectrum of spiritual influences, and is well known for his ability to demystify and share vedanta philosophy and the ancient wisdom of yoga in an easy to understand way.  Elahn spends an increasing amount of time in India and travelling the globe with his wife Radhe and daughter Tulsi, sharing the beauty and joy of the path of Bhakti Yoga through kirtan (devotional singing) and storytelling, yet spends the majority of the year in Glastonbury, overseeing Shekinashram, running it’s daily devotional programs and giving guidance and training to spiritual aspirants under the auspices of Sri Ramana Bihari Dasa Babaji.
